    Highly intelligent, energetic and ambitious Figaro wanted more than anything to be rich and famous so he could enjoy the splendid life of 18th century France. But he had no chance of succeeding because he was born a second-class citizen, and life for him and the other servants was so unbearable that whispers of revolt drifted through the musty air of the servants' quarters. The tricks Figaro thinks up to get even with the aristocrats produce one of the world's funniest comedies. Learn More
